And it HAS been spread throughout mythos. It was restated again in the 80s as well. People and WB just like to quietly bury it down cause it doesnt fit with the current Batman movies, as theyre trying to do with many other things. Anyway, I wrote about Chill some time ago -

And you cant just take a small fraction of a picture and discard the rest. Its like saying you watched Empire Strikes Back and in the first 2 minutes it didnt say Vader was Luke's father so that doesnt hold value. Thats the exact same thing here, entire continuity should be taken into consideration, not an out of context fragment of it. Or at least one era. Theyre always consistent and have a good continuity

Its a kid, he wont identify mobsters. All he will say is that they tried to take necklace from Mom and for cops its an apparent robbery. Job done. Without a witness testifying its a robbery police mightve suspected a mob hit and start digging into it
Yeah, because dead people with empty pockets just SCREAMS mob hit. And out of curiosity, how do you explain Joe leaving Bruce alive in the movies, where it WAS just a mugging gone wrong?

May he finally find the peace that eluded him in life.
